Wondering why you should make garlic beet hummus? Adding beets to hummus is a great way build flavor and boost the nutrition of your hummus.
Beets are well-known for having powerful antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. They are packed full of Vitamin C, Vitamin B6, Magnesium, Potassium, Folate, and fiber.
The purple color found in beets is due to their high betalain pigment content. This pigment betalain is also an antioxidant which is why the deep color of this root vegetable indicates high antioxidant activity.
Adding beets to any dish really can help that dish pack a nutrient dense punch! I chose to incorporate them into hummus because I am always looking for new ways to upgrade my hummus for my next party!
This Garlic Beet Hummus is super easy to make. I used canned chickpeas and beets to make your life easy. However if you wanted to cook your own dried chickpeas and roast beets for this, you can do that too.
If you’re using canned beets and chickpeas though, all you have to do is dump and go to make this beet hummus. Which is really the only way I like to cook.
